Just wow. This game is something everyone needs to experience. The gameplay is fluid and the puzzles are insanely challenging but clever and keep you interested even after you've been electrocuted or chopped in half for the tenth time in a row. Contrary to other reviews, I quite enjoyed the controls. After you've had some practice with them they become second nature and you can flick and swipe your way through the stages with a fluidity that is really satisfying.
The most striking part of this game is the atmosphere. The visuals are beautiful in their simplicity but the sound design is absolutely top of the line. Everything makes little noises when you interact with it and it serves to really immerse you in this strange environment.
I beat the game in about 5 hours on an 8 hour plane flight and spent the remaining 3 hours just enjoying the world and collecting secrets. Even after clearing everything I can clear I still pick it up to replay just to savor the experience again. Plunk down the $5 for this master piece.
Amazing, moody, action puzzler
This game is incredibly fun. The mechanics are great, the level design is clever, and the dark tone really adds an ominous sense of dread to the deadly puzzles. The pacing is great. When you have an "Ah ha!" moment and get past a puzzle, there's another one waiting for you. Sometimes, you think you solved a puzzle, but realize it's just a piece of a larger one. The game starts up quick and there is no load time during gameplay. My only gripe is that occasionally the control will register a tap when you mean to swipe. I get why the sensitivity is turned up. It's because some of the more "fast action" puzzles require precise timing. Highly recommend this game! Do yourself a favor and don't cheat by looking up puzzle solutions. Part of the fun is figuring out the physics of a puzzle. At first, it might not seem obvious, but eventually through a little trial and error you will figure all the puzzles out.
My almost 7yo and I have been playing this game intermittently for a couple of weeks now and both had just a tremendous time playing it. The puzzles are really well designed. Just difficult enough but still logical. Not once were we frustrated. Sure we failed plenty of times but you are never kicked back very far and when we finally did solve a difficult puzzle, there was always a sense of accomplishment that is often missing in other, "click around randomly" games. The pride in my son's voice when he figured something out (on many occasions before I did) was priceless. If you have children that like puzzles, check this out. There are some "gruesome" deaths but they're shown in monochrome. IMO it's more than balanced by the sense of wonder and analytical thinking it instills.
